Bates County Health Center
Bates County Health Center was opened as a demonstration unit on April 1, 1975. A vote of the citizens on August 3, 1976 approved a mill tax for the continuation of the local public health agency. Since its establishment, the Bates County Health Center has been dedicated to protecting the health and well-being of the citizens of the county. Although services offered have changed over the years, we still strive to fulfill the mission of public health which is to Prevent, Promote, and Protect our citizens.
Health Center hours are Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Extended hours include remaining open until 7:00 p.m. the first Thursday of every month.
